BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN - Chinese Ambassador to Brunei Zheng Xianglin said here Friday that the good relationship and cooperation between Brunei and China will enhance further in several sectors, including agriculture, fisheries, energy and economic sectors.
Ambassador Zheng made the remarks to local media prior to Premier Li Keqiang's visit to the country and the 23rd ASEAN Summit and related Summits in Brunei next week.
The ambassador believed that Li's visit to Brunei next week will see both countries to work together even more closely.
Premier Li is to attend the East Asia leaders meetings and pay an official visit to Brunei. During his trip to Seri Begawan, Li will attend the 16th China-ASEAN leaders meeting, the 16th ASEAN plus three (China, Japan and the Republic of Korea) summit and the 8th East Asia Summit to be held in Brunei, the chair nation of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The ambassador also cited several examples of Chinese companies looking into investment opportunities in Brunei at a dinner with local media. A Memorandum of Understanding between Asia Enterprise, a Bruneian company and China's Guangxi Mingming Agriculture was signed last month to develop a $4 million Agricultural Park in Brunei.
He expected more companies would come to Brunei in the future.
